Is this seat taken

I’ve signed up for the 31 Plays in 31 Days project, committing myself to daily playwriting throughout the month of August. The project includes a pre-challenge warmup of 256-(alpha-numeric)-character plays. Here’s today’s play:

    MAN: Is this seat taken?
    WOMAN 1: (Looks him over, frowns) Yes.
    (Man leaves)
    WOMAN 2: No one’s sitting there. Why’d you send him away?
    W 1: These latecomers need to learn that we who came earlier get to decide.
    (Curtain rises on “Damned Yankees”)
